N.A. Juniors Game Night 11/4: Jung Takes Loss in Seattle
Edmonton Oil Kings 2 @ Seattle Thunderbirds 8
G Torrie Jung, EDM: Loss, 26 saves, 2 PIM (Delay of Game)
Season totals: 6 GP, 3-2-0-1, 2.38 GAA, .926 sv%, 1 shutout
It was just one of those nights for the Edmonton Oil Kings and the Tampa Bay Prospect and goaltender Torrie Jung. The Oil Kings lost to the Seattle Thunderbirds tonight (Tuesday 11/4) 8-2 and Jung was pulled with 8:17 to go in the game when he was scored on with a penalty shot making the score 5-1.
Do not let the score fool you, Jung played an incredible first period as Seattle took 13 shots on him. He flat out stood on his head in an effort to keep the Oil Kings in the game. The score after the first period was only 1-0 Seattle when the score could have been at least 3 or 4-0 had it not been for the play of Jung. He seemed to lose focus in the second period, especially on the fourth goal, but he sure played well up until that goal. This 2007 seventh round pick deserved better tonight and I am sure his effort did not go unnoticed, especially in that first period of play.
